NEW YORK (AP) -- A new poll says Anthony Weiner has slipped to fourth place in the Democratic race for New York City mayor.

The poll was conducted by Quinnipiac University amid the fallout of his latest sexting scandal. Weiner was in first place in a Quinnipiac poll released five days ago and conducted before the scandal broke.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is in first place with 27 percent of likely voters. She was followed by Public Advocate Bill de Blasio at 21 percent, former city Comptroller Bill Thompson at 20 percent and Weiner at 16 percent.

Weiner said last week he continued having illicit online conversations after resigning from Congress in 2011.

Poll director Maurice Carroll says Weiner is in "freefall."

Pollsters surveyed 446 Democrats from Wednesday to Sunday. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.6 percentage points.
